    I agree with the low ratings. Half-height slots on the slide with slick upper make it very hard to work this gun’s tight action. Trigger is very hard. Muzzle flip strong. Sights ok, but not great. Slick frame makes it hard to control with standard mag (pinky hangs off), but extension (no adnl rds) helps. Mag release very stiff, too narrow to do with thumb, have to cant pistol and use other hand to rls mag. Slide release is way too thin, my thumb won’t grasp it, have to use a key to work it. My old hands won’t load first round unless I’ve already opened the slide because it’s so hard to grip. Shot 6 different brands of .380, one stovepipe and two failure to install until I learned to open the slide first. Can’t find the advertised .32 ACP conversion kit at all, but switching to that lighter round might alleviate some of the issues. Neat concept, but of 8 m/f at range, not one liked it (slide issues and stiffness even after 150 rds mainly). My Kel tec P32 works and feels better.
